The Bakers were encouraged to find treatment options beyond what LHSC could offer, which led them to travel around the world in search of experimental treatments, therapies and molecular profiling.

Rick and his wife Shelley donated $1.5M to support the advancement of pancreatic cancer care an

d research in the London region through the creation of the Baker Centre for Pancreatic Cancer.
